Journal On

Our story may actually set someone on the path to freedom. It will give encouragement and hope. It will honor God and become a remembrance stone for someone, someday. After all, even God keeps a journal. 

Then those who feared the Lord talked often one to another; and the Lord listened and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him of those who reverenced and worshipfully feared the Lord and who thought on His name. (Malachi 3:16,

My story includes recovery from a lifetime of bulimia, many illnesses, cancer and yes, even the life of a widow. Did I enjoy the journey of any of them? No, not much. 

But here is the good part. I was never alone. God kept me company, helped me stand through them and helped me trust him no matter what.

And that courage is available to any of God’s children, but first you must choose to be his child.

Do you journal? Our story may actually set someone else on the path to freedom because it gives encouragement and hope.

 It honors God and becomes a ‘remembrance’ stone. (Joshua 4:5-7) It might even keep someone from making the same mistakes we did. If we know the past we’ll be less likely to repeat it in our future. Look what happened when a Pharaoh came along who didn’t know the history of his own country! 

Then a new king, to whom Joseph meant nothing, came to power in Egypt. “Look,” he said to his people, “the Israelites have become far too numerous for us. Come, we must deal shrewdly with them or they will become even more numerous and, if war breaks out, will join our enemies, fight against us and leave the country.” (Exodus 1:8-11)

I encourage you to tell, write, record your journey to strengthen your loved ones.
